Ms. Darin Zeidan, Fulbright-Humphrey International Fellow at the University of Minnesota during the 2016-2017 academic year, will speak at the Middle East Peace Now (MEPN) Forum. She will address the continuing challenges to economic development in Palestine and share some of her personal difficulties with "reverse culture shock" in returning to live in Ramallah, following a year immersed in the Minneapolis version of West Bank life.
Ms. Zeidan is the Country Manager with the Palestine Association for Children's Encouragement of Sports (PACES), a U.K.-based charity serving Palestinian girls and boys ages 7 to 16 by providing healthy, structured after-school sports programs.
The program is free and open to the public and is sponsored by Middle East Peace Now.
